Rockhampton


Rockhampton is a city in Queensland, Australia. The city, which was originally established in 1858, had a population of 59,120 as 2003.

Rockhampton's main nickname is simply "Rocky". However, the city is also sometimes known as the "Beef Capital of Australia", in reference to the beef industry in the area. This industry encompasses widespread grazing, the Gracemere Saleyards which are one of the largest livestock sales facilities in Australia, the two large local abbattoirs, and a Beef Expo being held in the area every three years.

Released: 2016-05-25
Kindle Edition (89 pages)

Queensland Coastal Towns: A Road Trip
 
Product Description:
In this article (14,500 words, 22 photographs, and two diagrams) we discuss our road trip from Maroochydore to Cairns and back. On this journey we visited nine towns: Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Airlie Beach, Townsville and Cairns. Directly, this trip is approximately 3,500km, however with our side trips it was just over 5,000km.
We present the logistics of our trip including trip distances (via strip maps) and costs for fuel accommodation; and briefly describe key attractions and activities along the coast.
Our impressions of each of the nine cities visited is discussed and we identify three key activities/attractions for each city. Furthermore: key facts, things to do, resources for your own visit, heritage buildings and accommodation options for each city are provided in individual appendices.
If you wish to visit the Queensland coast we provide three options: a 21 day driving plan; a 21 day plan for train and bus travel; and a 14 day plan for travelling by air to each of the World Heritage-listed sites on the coast.
The eBook hyperlinks are comprehensive and will support your research, while the photographs will give you a glimpse of what to expect. As the marketers say: “Queensland is beautiful one day and perfect the next”!

The rubber pencil: a scooter ride across Australia
 
Product Description:
A powerful sooter is a good mode of long distance transport. On my Piaggio Scooter I travelled across Australia from Sydney to Darwin. It carried me and a small tent and sleeping bag and some essential supplies without problem from Sydney to Rockhampton and the Tropic of Capricorn on the central Queensland coast and then north west through Mount Isa and then west to The Stuart Highway and thern turning north to Darwin. This is a distance of four thousand kilometres. I chose the winter months to travel to avoid the heat of the tropics. I approached this trip as an artist using my scooter as a mechanical device to describe the landscape and the figures within as a draftsman renders a drawing. It remains a perfect way to travel
